Service Learning Agreements

 Any time a student is engaged in an off-campus service learning experience in conjunction with a course for credit, a Service Learning Agreement (SLA) is needed in order to protect the student and the University. In October 2016, the University procedure for processing all SLA forms became fully electronic.
